Amangiri Resort Entrance with Pool 
After a fairly easy 4 hour drive from Las Vegas we reached the Amangiri resort in Utah. It’s near lake Powell and the Arizona border. Made sure to have satellite radio in the rental car.
Had to keep a close eye on the road to see the small turn-off sign for the hotel but once we reached the small town of Canyon Point the sign was right there. Drove up a winding little road until we reached the gate which opened to another couple of miles to reach the seemingly isolated Resort.
Walking to Our Suite
The architecture blended into the desert and we were met at the stairs by a charming and kind concierge. We were incredibly impressed with the knowledge and friendliness of the staff and appreciated how they went above and beyond to make our stay special. 
Suite 35
It 's unique to have such a perfectly designed 5 star hotel adjacent to such a beautiful desert scene with great outdoor activities, Hiking, rock climbing, mountain biking, boating, etc. There are unique details and view points everywhere throughout this hotel. Subtle fountains, natural rocks, framed views of the desert, all more incredible than the next. The hotel design and setting is simply stunning.
The suites themselves are fantastic. Large open rooms with privacy and panoramic views of the desert. Having the desert roll right up to your room is incredible. The peace and tranquility here is an experience difficult to equal anywhere else.
We stayed in Terrace Suite 35 with beautiful views. The room has a comfy bed and seating area in front of it. The bathroom was super nice with ample closet space, soaking tub and a separate toilet area. Our outside sitting area with a fireplace was a lovely place to relax - quiet and peaceful! 
Main Pool
The pool is unbelievable, built around a huge rock and has plenty of lounges and sun beds. The food was delicious. There are indoor and outdoor seating areas and we also enjoyed cocktails in the desert lounge one evening before dinner. What a great place to relax.
Champagne Before Dinner
We planned a few adventures in the coming days and were very happy to be at the Amangiri Resort. We shall return.
Highly recommended!
